DCI’s very own I/O Psychologists have expertise in a wide range of validation strategies.
When it’s necessary to conduct formal validation research, DCI experts will analyze employment decisions that have been made based on selection tools. This research is often multifaceted and complex.
With your company’s unique needs in mind, we’ll determine the appropriate strategy for your particular circumstances. These validation strategies include:
Criterion approaches that use existing data to statistically test the relationships between selection tools and work outcomes of interest (e.g., performance, turnover, injuries).
Content-oriented approaches that leverage available job analysis research to evaluate the match between job information and selection tool content.
A variety of other approaches that borrow validity evidence from other sources and determine the extent to which those results generalize to new situations.
